Gummy bears and a couple of cans of cheap beer if we’re feeling lucky. I can’t say I am particularly glad to be a whole country’s width apart during...

Mixtape, Track 8

But I always recognized in those stories pieces of people I knew and conversations I had had; they were like choral compositions where everything else is just...

This is my beautiful friend Rebecca Kim. My favorite things to do with her include eating three-course desserts together in different parts of the world, running into her by accident in different parts of the world, and hanging out with her in secret for the sake of social politics, but only in New York. She prefers lychee ice cream over ginger ice cream because the flavor isn’t as...
